The world's most affordable Michelin-star restaurant and Hong Kong's legendary hole-in-the-wall eatery, Tim Ho Wan, opens up a dim sum phenomenon that ultimately changes the way Filipino families enjoy their hearty pocket specialties.
Tim Ho Wan, which literally translates to "add good luck", has captured the hearts of foodies, particularly those in Hong Kong and Singapore, and now it has found its way to Manila at the SM Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall.
If you’re planning to visit Tim Ho Wan this weekend, make sure to order these 4 bestselling dishes, as recommended by the Tim Ho Wan franchise owner for the Philippines, Enrico Dee:
1. Baked buns with BBQ pork, P145 / 3 pieces
A crumbly, fluffy pastry packed with lush, sweet and savory barbecued pork
2. Steamed Egg Cake, P85
A velvety custard topped with a caramelized crunch
3. Vermicelli Roll with Pig's Liver, P150
A silky sliver of vermicelli-wrapped tender and meaty slice of liver
4. Pan Fried Carrot Cake, P145
